Can you help me with my writing?

Authors are often asked for advice on writing technique and the process of becoming a published writer. Unfortunately, like most other authors, I’m unable to provide individual advice or read people’s manuscripts – I just don’t have the time! If you’re an aspiring writer, however, the links below may be of use to you.

Manuscript Assessment:

There are several excellent manuscript assessment agencies in Australia. It’s worth checking their specialties to see which will suit you. I had my early manuscripts assessed by Lynk and found them very helpful.



Can you visit my school, book club or writers’ group?

I’m happy to speak to groups about writing or conduct short writing workshops where time and travel permit. You can use the Contact form here to get in touch with me about the possibility of a visit. My fees are as per the standard ASA rates (which you can find here) unless otherwise negotiated.
